I finished ChaLean Extreme and I won the challenge group I had been participating in that just ended (I'm in another one now and doing Les Mills Combat).
My results? Not a lot of weight lost. A lot of inches shed. 17+ in fact. Dropped about 5% body fat as well.
More than that? The confidence that comes from sticking to something through the end. The ability to see a new me in the future again. A belief in self. No more inflammation. Improved allergies and reflux. Glowing skin. Stronger hair and nails. I think I might be able to beat someone at arm wrestling. A great group of wonderful, supportive women who don't judge me because they realize we are all on the same journey in one way or another. Better habits. WAY fewer cravings that have made it easier to make good choices and conquer an addiction because my agency is being restored and I have the support I need- emotionally and physically. A sense of purpose and a feeling of gratitude for a way that this weakness and challenge in my life can be turned for the better. Joy from helping others make changes as well and motivation from them as they become my supporters too.
